Default 5757er storage/display ideas sought

Hi guys,
I am about to organise storage/display for some of my 57 groups, which are all unmounted. Mostly they are ordinary in composition, but there is a RK and DKG grouping for an infantry officer. I would be grateful if members might share photos of their choices of display so that I might get some ideas to start with and go r me flexibility for collection growth? I am interested in seeing attributed, unattributed, and partial group storage/displays.
Thanks in advance,
Mac

Hi Mac,

Here is one suggestion. I use jewelry display stands and ring display trays with black frames and black velvet backing. You can get them online or at Arts and Craft stores. This is actually an 8X10 ring tray, in the vertical position that can be hung on a wall. The awards are secured into the tray.

Best,

Jeff

Nice looking display! I am mulling something that has awards fitted into velvet or felt, I think, to provide additional protection of moved.

I have my RKT groupings mounted in wooden (Riker) cases on dark blue velvet. You can hang them on your wall, place them on a stand and easily store them when needed.

Regards,
Nick

my recent custom made display case. Price was £400 but I coud choose from wood, decoration amd dimensions...

IMO worth it! Especially for such grouping.
